Fearless by Robin Parrish

In a blink, he became the most powerful man in th universe. But is that enough to keep him fearless when the world begins to crumble around him?

When you read this on the back cover of a book, you know that you are in for a "summer blockbuster" type of novel. Fearless does not disappoint. From the start to the end, Robin Parrish keeps you on the edge of your seat. The pace will remind you of an action-packed summer movie. The storyline is influenced by comic books. Larger than life characters, evil villains, large scale catastophes and done at a relentless pace.

This book is very good but not perfect. Characterization sometimes suffers from the fast paced storytelling. If you are looking for a great summer read, pick up Fearless. But be aware that it is the second book of a trilogy. Robin Parrish does a good job of filling you in on what happens in the first book but I would recommend reading Relentless first. You will want to read all three books in the Dominion Trilogy.

Rating: 4 stars.
